DARRYL KNIGHT The Standard


UXBRIDGE: The upcoming Holiday Trail, in downtown Uxbridge, from December 8th to 10th, will have an added attraction this year with the addition of several ‘life-sized’ games.

Councillors approved the addition at their meeting, on the morning of Monday, November 20th, following a report from, township museum curator and tourism coordinator, Katlyn Jones. In her recommendation, Ms. Jones outlined the addition of life-sized versions of jenga, corn hole, while a mini hockey arena will complement the other activities plannedwhich include musicians, visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus, trolley rides through the Fantasy of Lights at Elgin Park, and more.

“The games can add an element of play to the Holiday Trail, keeping guests in the town, and lengthening their stay,” Ms. Jones explained in her report. As well, Ms. Jones noted, the cost of bringing in the games is approximately $2,200. These costs will be partially covered by the Region of Durham and sponsorship from local contractor, Homestead Contracting, in addition the BIA is in discussions to cover some of the costs as well.

Councillors approved the recommendation in Ms. Jones’ reportwhich will see the jenga and hockey game available for use in the Circle K parking lot, along with the township’s tourism trailer. The corn hole game will be located in the parking lot of the Second Wedge Brewery, on Victoria Street.
